Save the date! Thu. Jun. 23 is the long awaited Open Heart event — a fundraiser for Artbeat Studio.
This year, the popular event is being held at Knox United Church, 400 Edmonton St. across from Central Park.
Supper and Art Sale start at 5:30 p.m. followed by a free concert at 7 p.m. Donations are gratefully accepted for Artbeat Studio.
It’s a “friend raising” event celebrating all things Central Park. Not only will you have a chance to buy original artwork from the talented artists at Artbeat Studio and Studio Central, there will also be resource tables featuring neighborhood organizations.
Knox Community Kitchen is one of the partners at this event, and will provide vegetarian chili and bread in exchange for a donation.
Some great bands are playing, as well. In addition to seeing Studio Central’s house band Harmony Workshop, you can also catch the Dirty Catfish Brass Band belting out their tunes; they’ve got a great version of Feets can’t fail me now.
Terry MacLeod, host of the Weekend Morning Show on CBC Radio 1 will be the emcee for the event.
